Looks great! One can clearly see just how old this beautiful tree was. Another one gone! Just hope that new ones have been planted as replacements.

@dobbino: Hey Rob! Thanks! Yes i hope so too! This is a beautiful state park, so i assume they follow all the necessary rules... Simply gorgeous. If you ever visit San Francisco, make sure to take a walk in Muir Woods... wonderful place!
lovely shot, another one bites the dust :(

@Alun Lambert: Thanks -- And it is sad that this glorious tree was cut down... but the Forest / Park is well maintained and taken care of so hopefully it was a necessary cut... of course we can use as many standing trees as we have left nowadays...
Great work. Really nice colours

@Anthony Lambert: Cheers for the comment! It was a really rainy day and the lens was wet (which worried me some) but the result was that i got all sorts of halos... which i actually quite like... gives this image a bit of a transcendental take. :)
. . like passing a hand thru Time itself . . .

@Ronnie 2¢: Thanks for the comment! When i took this picture i had something else in mind... but when i saw the results, it changed my mind completely... i love the spiritual essence this photo has!
This tree must be so old, like leathered or stoned... wonderful colours too.

@zOOm: Many thanks! Due to the rain, it does look quite petrified! :) And the cut surface of the trunk was very smooth to the touch.
This tree is very very old!!! Whoa! What is it? Sequoia? Good evening dj Tigersprout.

@Riccardo: Hello and good evening Riccardo! Yes, it is a Sequoia i believe. The forest we were in has sequoias and redwoods. Beautiful trees that are very big! :) Thanks for the comment!
That must be very very old.

@Shuva Brata Deb: Hello and thanks! Yes, i don't know how to read age in tree years... but i think it is very old quite the same. Must have been some life!
I think every ring is one year and that trunk has a lot! Great shot!

@fcofont: Thank you! If only the tree could speak... I'm sure it would have a great story to tell! Cheers.
The hand gives a scale and the number of rings its age, so we can see that it's really a big old trunk ... What a wonderful tree it musted to be !!

@Evelyne Dubos: Thanks Evelyne! Yes, I imagine that this would have been a very majestic tree! :) Cheers.
The hand is touching History... it works very well as an allegoric image of time, death, transcendence, ...

@Condemna: A million thanks! I totally love your interpretation! :) Yes i believe the imagery stands for all of those things! Great philosophical explanation!!

@bluechameleon: Thanks mate! Yeah -- I didn't try for this exactly... i just liked the composition through the viewfinder... but i am sure happy with the magical / spiritual results regardless! :)
Wow so wonderful and lovely shot! Magnificent work :)
